I have been obsessed with this healthy Tzatziki Sauce recipe for basically the entire summer.
If you don't believe me, check out this Full Day Of Eating Vlog I did.
Ok, so If you've followed the blog for a while, then you know I go through spurts with food. I'll make something...really, really, really like it, and then I'll make it non-stop for the next several weeks. And usually, after the spurt ends, I don't make it again for a long, long time. It's just the way I operate.
Well, the stopping part still hasn't happened yet with this tzatziki. I'm still as crazy as ever about it.
In my opinion, the best thing about this Tzatziki Sauce is how filling it is. Yes, it's delicious and refreshing - but I think that goes without saying. What's really surprising to me is how filling this sauce/dip is. I noticed a considerable difference in satiety when I used the sauce on things, and when I didn't. As a result, Tzatziki Sauce immediately became a staple of my diet leading up to my wedding (I recently lost 28lbs for the big day). See, when you're dieting feeling "full" is a mythical feeling (it's like a unicorn), and when you find foods that make you feel this way, you eat them!

Make this! So good. I added a little extra garlic, but otherwise followed the recipe to a T. We got about 3 servings out of this which fit nicely into my macros and the extra little boost of protein is always welcome.
